The Kinship Alliance Youth (KAY) program will provide activities, workshops, lead support groups and events that encourage Self-Love, Leadership and Life Skills to kinship youth of all ages.  Programming will also have a focus on hosting events for youth and their kinship caregiver. KAY participants meet twice a month, online and in-person throughout Seattle as well as be connected with a KAY mentor.
